Sun Conjunct Saturn
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Sun conjunct your natal Saturn. Duty, responsibility and honor are highlighted at this time. Tradition and family matters may come to the forefront, and your business obligations will weigh heavy on you, causing you to feel more tired than usual at the end of the day. This can be a time of serious committment when you start a new project that has long term consequences for the future (the author started his web/software business under this transit). Advancement and promotion is certainly possible now, but you may have doubts about your effectiveness or insecurities about the future. You may sense that you are losing touch with others as this transit has the effect of isolating you. It can be due to pursuing your ambitions, but it is also a side effect of Saturn's ability to distinguish you and set you apart. The more distinct you become, the less like other people you are, and the danger is that you can begin to feel alienated from those around you.
If Saturn is lord of your 1st house, this is a time when your life direction comes into focus. Events at this time serve to distinguish you and set you apart from your peers. Meetings with important people or higher ups are indicated. Your approach to life is more serious and methodical than usual.
If lord of the 2nd, this is a time to make financial plans and scrutinize investments. Lost items may turn up at this time. It is time to wrap up old financial matters and tidy up your accounting.
If lord of the 3rd, you may have important business matters to attend to now. Serious attention should be paid to communication. Meetings with older relatives or leadership directed at obtaining cooperation in your community may be indicated.
If lord of the 4th, important matters related to your father or to male ancestors may come to light. It is a time to draw strength from who you are and from your heritage. Family name, honor and responsibility seem more important to you now.
If lord of the 5th, your focus turns toward your investments in both finance and love relationships. Children may need more structure and guidance. Your expression may seem rehearsed, lacking spontaniety, or is carefully thought out.
If lord of the 6th, pay closer attention to your health, particularly your bones and cardoivascular system. It is a good time to get a checkup from your doctor. Superiors may be scrutinizing your work more carefully now. A serious mood pervades the office.
If lord of the 7th, this is a time for obtaining cooperation or partnership. Relationships have a sober quality so this configuration is good for business matters. Flaws in marriage or partnership may show more clearly now.
If lord of the 8th, you may be morbidly preoccupied at this time. Sometimes indicates the need to deal with estate issues or matters pertaining to the deceased in relation to finance or carrying out the obligations of a will or last testament.
If lord of the 9th, travel for the sake of business may be indicated. Legal or philosophical issues may be a source of preoccupation for you now. You are in a scientific frame of mind and may be prone to skepticism.
If lord of the 10th, serious attention is on your career direction and you may receive promotion or advancement. A significant achievement may be accomplished and you may receive recognition for your efforts from important individuals.
If lord of the 11th, your social circle seems more serious or "stuffy". While your associates may be helpful in achieveing your career goals, they may not be much fun to be around.
If lord of the 12th, you may have a tendency to procrastinate, but it is time to take care of unfinished business. Isolation or solitude appeals to you now.
